I am new here, so forgive me if there is a thread already answering this question... but has anybody experienced worse mood swings and bad mixed episodes while taking Lamictal? I am schizoaffective bipolar type and I recently switched from 1250 mg of depakote to lamictal. I'm up to 150 mg of Lamictal, and I feel worse. I'm having bad mixed episodes, hypomania, and bad anxiety. It's a really bad feeling.
by the way, I started smoking 3 weeks ago (I know, bad)... could that be making my mood swings and anxiety worse?
